WARNING: Spoilers

The sixth episode of Riverdale provided a much-anticipated reunion followed by one whopper of a revelation.

If you haven’t watched “Chapter 6: Faster Pussycats, Kill! Kill!” then please be warned: there will be spoilers.

Betty and Jughead’s search for answers paid off when they visited the Sisters of Quiet Mercy in their quest to find Betty’s sister Polly.

Yes, they did find her so the siblings were reunited (yay!). It’s also when Betty realized Polly was pregnant with Jason’s baby (ruh roh!). That’s why Hal and Alice sent their daughter there. To get her away from her boyfriend whose family the Coopers despise. They never approved of this relationship. They would do anything to stop it.

Anything? Betty did confront her father. She asked him if he’s the one who made off with the sheriff’s murder board and, oh yeah. She also asked him whether he killed Jason, to which Alice had herself a great big laugh. She clearly doesn’t think her hubby has the you-know-what to do such a thing.

When we recently visited the set of the CW series, Lili Reinhart (Betty) discussed this dramatic development, including the fact that by the end of “Chapter 6,” her sister was missing from the institution:

While Betty and Jughead’s sleuthing kept them busy for most of the episode (who burned up that car full of evidence?), they did manage to stop and experience a monumental moment.

Jughead: “We’re not our parents, Betty. We’re not our families. Also…”
Betty: “What? What?”

Jughead. Kissed. Betty. In Vancouver, Cole Sprouse (Jughead) talked about the awesomeness that is Betty and Jughead:

In other Riverdale news, a variety show threw everybody out of whack. Archie didn’t want to perform by his lonesome, so he recruited Valerie. At first, she said no, so Veronica offered her services to Archiekins. When Valerie had a falling out with Josie, she accepted Archie’s collaborative offer. Veronica was pissed that she was insensitively pushed aside and in retaliation, or whatever you want to call it, she joined the Pussycats.

In the end, Archie fabulously performed his original song, “I’ll Try,” by himself. Valerie rejoined Josie and the Pussycats, who made room for one more: Veronica. They sang Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” and all was right with the world.

Camila Mendes (Veronica) talked about Veronica joining the Pussycats:

While Josie and Valerie’s friendship hit a snag, Veronica becoming a Pussycat enabled Josie and Veronica to bond. The two share similarities. They’re fierce as hell, talented, smart, beautiful, and they both have major daddy issues. Veronica’s father is in jail and in “Chapter 6,” we learn that Josie and her jazzman dad don’t share an ideal relationship. He’s often on the road, plus he’s quite judgmental and doesn’t seem to have as much confidence in his daughter as she has in herself. This shared pain lead Josie and Veronica to open up about their issues at Pop’s.

Ashleigh Murray chatted about how filming the variety show was one of her favorite experiences for a few different reasons including getting to wear “the iconic Pussycat costume” and for KJ Apa’s performance of “I’ll Try.” She talked about her emotional reaction to hearing his song.

Riverdale airs Thursday nights at 9/8c on the CW.
